Tutorial 3: Chord Following

This tutorial shows how to make Event Bots follow a sequence of chords.

In this example, a single guitar bot “gets down with its bad self (so to speak)” by noodling over an 8-bar “jazz” rhythm pattern. Thus demonstrating that nwdlbots are not just for ambient music.

The table of pitches used by the chord sender to trigger different scales is visible here.


I’ve modified the guitar phrasing by applying a clip envelope to the chance control in Event Generator, making it more or less likely to play at particular points in the loop.

The variations in drum pattern here come from another, as yet unreleased, bot.

(Ableton Live and Max for Live required).
